Rockets, Communists, and the Dewey Decimal System - S1-E2

Other mistake: As Young Sheldon is a prequel series to Big Bang Theory, this episode is at odds with episode 2-13 of Big Bang Theory, "The Friendship Algorithm," in which Sheldon is unfamiliar with books like "How to Make Friends and Influence People," which he reads in this episode of Young Sheldon, produced nine years later but taking place twenty years earlier.

A Solar Calculator, a Game Ball, and a Cheerleader's Bosom - S1-E5

Factual error: The commentary suggests that Sheldon had the correct solution to problem 1 and merely lost points on the quiz because he didn't show his work. In reality he did the first problem incorrectly. Taking the derivative of (x+2) ^2+ (y+1) ^2 = 13 with respect to x yields: 2* (x+2) +2* (y+1) * (dy/dx) = 0 which implies that: dy/dx = - (x+2) / (y+1) and at the point (0,2) this means that the slope dy/dx is actually equal to - (2/3), not 2/3. It is correct that when using the form y=mx+b at the point 0,2 reveals that 2=m*0+b, or that b=2. So the correct equation for the tangent line is y = - (2/3) x + 2, not y = (2/3) x + 2 as shown in the episode. (00:13:55)

A Patch, a Modem, and a Zantac - S1-E6

Factual error: At the start of the episode when someone is talking at the podium, there's a a periodic table behind him on the wall. On the left of barium, 'Sc' for scandium is there instead of 'Cs' for cesium.

Jiu-Jitsu, Bubble Wrap, and Yoo-Hoo - S1-E17

Plot hole: Near the start we see Sheldon using physics to try and take down Tam. This completely goes against all of Sheldon's phobias about touching people, especially socks. Even before this episode he has shown his displeasure at the thought of touching people. (00:05:00)
